Philosophers have discussed virtue and character since Socrates, but many traditional views have been challenged by recent findings in psychology and neuroscience. This fifth volume of Moral Psychology grows out of this new wave of interdisciplinary work on virtue, vice, and character. It offers essays, commentaries, and replies by leading philosophers and scientists who explain and use empirical findings from psychology and neuroscience to illuminate virtue and character and related issues in moral philosophy. The contributors discuss such topics as eliminativist and situationist challenges to character; investigate the conceptual and empirical foundations of self-control, honesty, humility, and compassion; and consider whether the virtues contribute to well-being.

Moral Psychology, volume 5: Virtue and Character is a must-read for scholars working on virtue today, especially scholars who are interested in empirically informed moral psychology. Walter Sinnott-Armstrong and Christian Miller have put together an excellent collection of original work on character and virtue, written by scholars in a broad range of disciplines. I recommend it very highly.
